Case Journeys: Treatment Planning for Improving Social Competencies

preload

Watching a clinical case study, or “case journey,” unfold overtime can be very informative and powerful—and gaining tools to unpack the case journeys of the individuals you support is even better. In this course, we explore several clinical case journeys and apply a unique six-step decision-making template as a guide through the treatment process. We also help you organize your treatment planning according to our two new foundational categories: how the social world works and how I work (navigate to regulate) in the social world.

 

Watch this short video example Michelle Garcia Winner shares in the adolescent track of this course—demonstrating how she uses magnets with her clients to help explain friendships & relationships. You can use this exercise with pre-teen, teenagers, young adults, or even adults.

 

Learn a variety of concepts, frameworks, and strategies to build social competencies that align with an individual’s age, personality, social learning strengths/challenges, developmental abilities, and mental health challenges. In the afternoon, we will divide into groups based on student, client, or patient age and explore how different case journeys unfold. Members of the Social Thinking Training and Speakers’ Collaborative will share their own clinical case journeys and treatment ideas, and you will get the opportunity to practice using the six-step tool with your own cases. Get lots of hands-on participation and learning in this course!

In this course, join us to:


  • Unpack the Six Steps for Treatment* Decision-Making template and practice using it with your caseload or family member(s)

  • Review the six layers of evidence supporting the Social Thinking Methodology and connect the layers of evidence to the treatment planning process
  • Explore a conceptual framework, the Social Thinking–Social Competency Model (SCM), to guide treatment based on an individual’s needs. We will demonstrate how the SCM intersects with the Social Thinking Social Learning Tree
  • Explore how treatment frameworks and strategies can be used in unison to develop different aspects of social-emotional learning
  • Discover how the same treatment frameworks and strategies can be used differently for individuals based on age and social learning development

*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social competencies.
